I have to admit I am a real novice and have nothing to compare Sunlight to. My son has been in the kids ski school for the second year. He loved it. I took snowboard lessons this season. The people who work here are genuine and fantastic. It is locals and low-key. No fancy restaurants, expensive shopping or crowded traffic/condos. It is 10 miles up on top of a mountain. More like drive-in, drive-out. No one is trying to show off their expensive ski outfit. Again, the people who work there are out to please. I hate to tell others about this place as I would like to keep it a secret for myself.
